Subway Sandwich shops will be closing up to 500 stores nationwide before the end of the year. Will Hudson Valley locations be affected? Subway has 44,000 locations across the globe and close to 27,000 in the United States. So the closing of 500 won't put a dent in their overall total.

The revitalization plan, announced last summer, will require independent owner-operators to invest more money in their locations.
